Abstract

The binuclear tartrate-bridged complexes [Cr 2 (tartH) 2 (L)2 ] and Na [ Cr2 (tart) (tartH) (L)2]("tart" = C4H2O64-, "tartH" = C4H3O63- and "L"= 1,10-phenanthroline or 2,2'-bipyridyl) have been synthesized where each complex contains either two optically active or two meso bridging ligands. A discussion of the number of isomers and symmetries of these complexes is presented, as well as a complete description of the syntheses of the complexes and their sodium salts.
